Behind the scenes with vet techs at the NC Zoo

ASHEBORO, N.C. -- Hundreds of animals live at the North Carolina Zoo, but there are only two full-time veterinarians to provide health care for all of them.

They rely on 19 veterinary technicians on staff to help with everything from blood draws to lab work.

This is Vet Tech appreciation week, a chance to see how critical these members of the team are to providing health care for the animals at the Zoo.
